Comments. Ocyptamus funebris Macquart  was described based on an unknown number of specimens from Brasil found in the collection of M. Serville in Paris. Later, Bigot acquired the Macquart collection, which contained the Serville collection. In the Verrall-Collin Collection at the UMO, there are five specimens associated with the Bigot’s label of O. funebris Macquart. Four  of the specimens are without heads and otherwise damaged. The lone intact male is here designated lectotype and has been so labeled.

Hull (1949a) wrongly portrayed the reddish areas of the abdomen of Baccha bromleyi Curran, 1929  as completely yellow in his drawing ( Hull 1949a: 131, pl. XVI: fig. 123). This could lead one to confuse the abdominal markings of this taxon with those of O. megafemur Thompson  sp. n.
